Who answers the requests? All requests are made to an Italian company that represents the Mansudae Art Studio abroad. There are no direct interactions with the Mansudae Art Studio nor North Korea.
How much are shipping costs? It depends, of course, on the destination and on the size of the art work. The works are shipped from Italy: the economic transactions of the Mansudae Art Studio as far as the art works presented in this web-site are concerned are with an Italian company.
How do I make the purchase? Once the availability of the art work has been confirmed, you communicate your intention to make the purchase and your data (shipping address, invoice data etc.) using the form provided in this section and you make the payment either by PayPal or by bank transfer to the banking account that will be indicated to you. Again, the payment is made to an Italian company that will invoice the work(s).
When is the work shipped? Within three days from the receipt of the payment, unless different agreements.
Which laws govern the transactions? The sales are made by an Italian company. The transactions are governed by Italian law. In particular the buyer can return the art work by communicating his/her intention to return it and shipping it back within ten working days from its receipt. The price paid will be fully reimbursed, shipping expenses excluded, once the art object is received in good conditions by the Italian company.
How do I know the works are original? This is the official Western web-site of the Mansudae Art Studio. According to Italian law, each work is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity. That certificate is stamped with the stamp made by the Mansudae Art Studio especially to guarantee these works.
